The Last Musketeer #3: Double Cross by Stuart Gibbs

Double Cross (The Last Musketeer, #3)This book is the third in the series, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. The Musketeers manage to escape from their captors and meet up with the French army coming from Paris. However, they realize that Milady sent a false message to King Louis in order to get the army to leave Paris undefended. The enemy forces had a head start, so the city is under attack when the Musketeers return. In addition, Milady also returned to Paris and filled the king with more lies. The Musketeers are accused of treason, and King Louis wants them arrested. And all along, Dinicoeur is after the Devil's Stone, and he has a diabolical and cruel plan to stop Greg and the Musketeers from ever existing. Milady has also discovered that the pendant has powers, so she is after the stone too. The second half of the book is especially full of action.

This plot is back to the adventure of the first book, and the Musketeers get themselves into more impossible situations. Catherine becomes another main character, and Greg reveals his secrets to her. The plot flowed smoothly, with nice spots of unexpected suspense, and it kept me guessing and anticipating the next events. It looks like this book is the last one in the series.
